Yes, it's about time at least they are being dispensed in a good volume. It's still not enough. It is very much under dispensed to those requiring it. Those with insurance or those with a propensity to increase the dose on their own initiative exists. What most people DON'T KNOW IS: The state you live in has a real time computerized tracking system that is prohibitive to duplication of same type Rx's. And yes they are intertwined with all states.

I have ordered prescription drugs from ZTOPIX dot COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
